Moscow calling!

So just as Alan and David recover from the jetlag of their recent trip to Shanghai, we bring you news from a little closer to home (but only just!).

Elena Rozanova, an ex-client who has worked for leading real estate agencies Jones Lang LaSalle, DTZ and Donaldsons, has joined the Air team as General Director. She’ll be based in Moscow to manage projects and look after existing clients in the country, as well as develop Air’s presence in Russia by getting new business and increasing our coverage in the industry press.

A native Russian speaker and fluent in English, Elena is a valuable asset to the team as she is able to liaise between clients and the London design team to ensure the smooth running of a project, giving clients peace of mind that they have someone locally to call upon should the need arise. Thanks to her marketing background, she is also more than aware of what a client wants and expects at different points during a design project. All sounds good eh?

Elena is coming to visit the London studio this week to meet the team and have a crash course in all things Air, from brand strategy to interiors and business development to PR. It’s gonna be hectic. We’ll let you know how she gets on!
